Although India operates one of the largest electricity grids in the world with 310 GW  generation capacity, over 250 million people are not connected to the grid and several parts of the country experience frequent power cuts. India's per capita consumption of electricity which is one-third of world average is expected to increase as the economic development of the country progresses. As the quality of life will witness ascendancy, people's energy demands will rise steeply. With an ever-increasing need of energy and challenges such as need to control power theft and transmission losses, India has launched ambitious missions to establish smart grids and smart cities. Making energy supplies efficient is key to power the country's economic growth but the power infrastructure in India faces numerous challenges. 

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Reji Kumar Pillai, President, India Smart Grid Forum commented, "Smart Grid is an evolving set of technologies to transform the electricity grid in to a more intelligent and reliable grid with integrated control centre that can monitor and control electricity flows in real time up to each individual customers and even up to the smart appliances inside a customer's premises. These technologies can help electric utilities manage supply and demand effectively in real time and avoid power cuts, ensure power quality that will eliminate the need for voltage stabilizers and inverters. This will also help customers save money by shifting some of their electricity usage like water pumping, washing machines etc to run during non-peak hours at reduced rates.

The Associated Chambers of Commerce of India (ASSOCHAM), Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Global Smart Grid Federation (GSGF), India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), TERI, US India Business Council, Bureau of Indian Standards, GERMI, Council on Energy, Environment & Water (CEEW), ISGAN, CIGRE, Brookings India are among the supporting partners of the conference.
